Just curious, how far was the shot and what caliber/grain you using?
If you've got access to private land, I can show up and sit right on your shoulder for good luck.

The shot was somewhere around 150 yards or so, downhill, with a 30-06 that I built myself on a Mauser K98 action using a Shilen barrel. Ammunition is hand-loaded: RP brass, Win primer, Barnes TTSX 150gr lead-free bullet, and 50.5gr of H4895.

Sub-moa at 100 yards. Not sure of the velocity as I haven't chrono'ed it yet, but the terminal ballistics tells the tale - one shot drop and perfect expansion:
